    Im trying to text a cell phone in Emmen in the Netherlands, they are with KPN. I would like to know the area code and the country code i need to put before the cell number. Aslo id like to know how many digits does a cell phone have in Emmen using KPN provider. Thankyou.


    Hi Rimonde. Judging by your email address I suppose you are from Australia (this is important). Cell numbers in the Netherlands do not use area codes. They use the following format nationwide: 6 ???? ????. So you will dial 0011 31 6 ???? ???? (or you can replace 0011 with the plus sign).

Some information on these forums could be outdated - countries change their numbering plans periodically. We recommend using our top menu to double check the correct instructions for dialing to a specific country.
